10am check-in for IHG Spire Elites

Last week, IHG sent out an email to Spire Elite members advising them of a new benefit of the program: 10am early check-in based on availability. That’s a nice benefit to have if it works out, though it seems that this is going to be up to the hotel’s discretion — which isn’t much of a change in reality. This new benefit is included in the chart of elite benefits at IHG’s website: And here is…

[Expired] Delta flash sale: 48K RT to London

Delta is offering a flash sale on flights to London from various cities in the US with prices starting from just 48,000 miles round trip (in economy class).

However, this price is available from some smaller cities, which might be appealing to those in less competitive markets. The Deal Round trip economy class flights to London starting at 48,000…
